We talked  about cable bending a few weeks ago just thought I would do a couple quick videos of how this works. Very Nice Tool. Easy to use  It has been awhile for videos let me know this works OK.       default.jpg?v=57961edc&sqp=CJDA2LwF&rs=A

I use a pair of Z-bend pliers that I use for making Z-bends for radio control airplane control linkage.  They work just fine for throttle and choke cables as well.

I worked in Chevrolet parts dept back in the 80s and we used one of those to make heater control cables.   Customers had to bring their old cable in, then we would make a new one the same length from a roll of cable.

 TDF5G  And it was probably made in U.S.A. It hard to find tools like this that are made in this country.

Yes.  

It's hard to find anything that is made in USA anymore.  They still make cheeseburgers here but that's about it.

Mine just showed up in the mail.  Had to try it out on an old cable...This is better than sliced bread and Skippy!!

 

The company must be curious about the "run"  on the pliers.
